Cotton Club

About the Cotton Club

Founded in 1988, and named for the landmark house at the top of "the hill", the Cotton Club provides financial support for the interpretation and preservation of history at Heritage Hill State Historical Park. Your annual membership helps provide an interactive, living history experience for students and visitors of all ages.

Funds raised through the Cotton Club go directly to support park interpreters, building restoration, educational planning and conservation of artifacts. Heritage Hill interpreters bring the buildings and artifacts to life for 16,600 school children and 34,000 visitors each year.

The Cotton Club is sponsored by the Heritage Hill Foundation, a non profit 501(c)(3) corporation, which serves to provide financial support for Heritage Hill State Historical Park.

Membership and Benefits

While there are many ways to support Heritage Hill, financially or as a volunteer, membership does have its benefits. All membership levels include admission to Heritage Hill and its events, discounts at the General Store, invitations to special events, and the knowledge that you play a role in preserving our rich heritage.

Membership in Cotton Club provides tax savings as well. A portion of each membership is tax-deductible based on benefits selected.

Cumulative gifts over $1,000 are represented on the Donor Tree in the Education Center. Gifts may remain anonymous.
